Congratulations guys.
Life occasionally offers us the opportunity to make very very hard choices. I have had such offers.

They are indeed all worthy winners. I can often tell by the style who it was that made a kitless pen but that amazing black / copper pen had me stumped.
Fellow Brit, Duncan hasn't even made his first post yet and has silently come in and blown away the competition. Well done how about an intro?

Thanks for the recognition, everybody !! . I feel very gratified !

It is an amazing thing what the decision to enter a pen contest can do to stimulate your creative juices. . Once I started, the novel ideas kept flowing. . Hope to further refine .

I have already messaged Duncan to chastise him for springing on us like he did without even filing an Introduction !!! . What a pen !!

Of course, Doc's pen is fabulous ..... but we have grown to expect that from him !!

The other entrants did an amazing job too .... there should have been 7 prizes !!
Kids rule the world !!! .... eventually if not already !
